32 reviews

AbiWord is a full-featured, efficient word processing application. It is suitable for a wide variety of word processing tasks, and is extensible with a variety of plugins.

This package includes many of the available import/export plugins allowing AbiWord to interact with ODT, WordPerfect, and other formats. It also includes tools plugins, offering live collaboration with AbiWord users on Linux and Windows (using TCP or Jabber/XMPP), web translation and dictionary support, and more.

Additional plugins that require significant amounts of extra software to function are in the various abiword-plugin-* packages.

2 Decided to give it a try after not using it for a while. Yes, it is lean on resources, compared to Libreoffice. Typed up a document, proceeded to save to avoid losing data: Program crahed on the spot. Uninstalling.

4 Traitement de texte ultra légés, il ne convient pas pour utilisation professionnelle ou en entreprice (on lui préferera LibreOffice Writer pour une utilisation plus poussée). Mais il est idéal pour les très vieux ordinateurs.

1 Riddled with bugs, and always has been. I'm a writer, and this is software for writing. Yet, from experience I would never trust it to handle my words with care. Problem? Yes.

5 Abiword is my favorite word processor. It has everything I need and more but not too much more. After Google Chrome and Thunderbird, the first tool out of the box.

3 Abiword is a simple basic word processor. I write documents using Abiword almost daily for internal company and personal use, and external publication/presentation documents.

4 It certainly looks more appealing than OpenWord, especially on Mint 10 with its Faenza buttons. However I've encountered some rendering problems with .docx format (MSWord2007). .doc and .odt formats seem to work fine.

1 A buggy CPU hog that doesn't yield a single cycle to other processes once it's started loading a file. Painfully aware of this after I tried to open a measly 1.2MB wordlist. 36 hours later, I pulled the plug. Yes, the file system survived.

3 Crashes constantly when working on documents not in Abiword format. Development mostly stalled.

4 The official word processor of the Gnome project. Really easy, intuituve and good word processor. If you want some easy software too use for your documents, use that.

5 OpenOffice does a lot of formatting stuff that I don't want, but can't figure out how to turn off. Abiword is a much better choice for me. Setting defaults is much easier as well: set up a blank document with how you want all the defaults to be, and save it in the templates folder. Nice.

4 A good light replacement to OpenOffice for people that don't need all the features of a complete office suite.

4 An underappreciated word processing program, Abiword is lighter, and just about as easy to use as OpenOffice's Word Processor, if not moreso. If you like stand-alone applications rather than suites, this is probably the word proccessor you're looking for.

5 Less functions than OpenOffice, but still efficient for simple text processing. It is more lieghtweight than OpenOffice and reads more file formats.
